This is totally off the wall but wouldn't it be sweet to find out what brand of cigar Eastwood smokes throughout his spaghetti westerns?

"Toscano" (plural: toscani) isn't a brand of cigars, it's a kind of cigar. We had some good threads about this on the old Eastwood Board, but they're all gone now.

Anyway, here's a link to some more information ...  ;)

On The Beguiled DVD in the Production Notes Eastwood states that he smokes cheroot cigars in the westerns. I just came across that for the first time last night.

"Cheroot" is another style of cigar. It's possible he smokes them in some Westerns. However, in the Leone films he was definitely smoking toscani.

See Christopher Frayling's Sergio Leone: Something to Do With Death (2000), p. 182-183.

I've been trying to find what kind of cigars Clint smoked in High Plains Drifter. They look like they might have been some kind of panatella, but I'm not sure. Anyone have info? Thanks.

I recall reading somewhere that Clint didn't like how long those cigars were so he used to break them in half?

Couldn't tell you if that was the case though.

It says that in one of the notes that comes with one the Dollars DVD. I can't remember which DVD it is though sorry.

It also says that he didn't like the taste of them, and thats why he scringes his face sometimes when he smokes them.

Are these cigars available in the United States?  I think it'd be kinda neat to try one of these.
